After a much delay – a biopic of badminton ace Saina Nehwal is underway. Bollywood star Shraddha Kapoor will be playing Nehwal in the upcoming movie which is directed by Amol Gupte.
Sharing the picture in her Instagram account, Shraddha simply wrote: “Saina.”
Shraddha is seen sporting a red, white and blue t-shirt and dark blue skirt. She has a racquet in her hand and is seen showing a winning expression on her face and looks quite similar to Saina.
It may be recalled that Shraddha has been preparing hard for the role.
Speaking about her practice sessions, she had said: “I fell in love with the game when I started playing it. But it is very challenging. On the days when I practice badminton, my days are completely different and I am a different person when I don’t play. I usually start playing it from 6 am in the morning every day for two hours or so. We aim to practice every day but if my arms or legs get too sore then I don’t do the class. I feel tempted to play that time as well but I have been advised not to play as I would get prone to injuries.”
Shraddha recently also met Saina’s parents ahead of the start of the shoot of the movie.
“Saina’s parents gave lots of love to me and they treated me like a family when I visited their home, so, it felt really nice to see them here.”
